If you’ve been following The Measured Mom since the beginning, you know I have a weakness for count and clip cards. They’re simple to make, fun to do, and teach a few important skills in one activity. Plus, they’re so easy to customize for the seasons! In honor of October, I’ve created another preschool counting printable: Monster Count & Clip Cards. But rest assured, there’s nothing scary about these adorable little creatures!
Preschool counting printable
My Three really enjoys these. We stick with just numbers 1-10. He tends to point all over the place when counting. Today we worked at counting all the monsters in a row and then moving to the next row. This was a little challenging because every time I tried to show him, my independent little guy (read: stubborn!) insisted, “No, I want to do it myself!”
We’ll get there. 🙂
He’s showing a lot of improvement at counting cards. I love that he’s practicing quite a few important skills:
- one-to-one correspondence
- number recognition
- fine motor (pinching that clothespin!)
Even though my Three can’t count groups past ten yet, I like to make my cards go up to 20 for the benefit of older preschoolers. My Five practiced counting the larger sets.

Hello, Is there any way to get the counting cards larger. I teach children who have visual impairments and to have some of these counting cards as large as a half sheet up to a whole sheet of paper for my kiddos would be amazing.
Hi Tracie! That might be something you could figure out with your printer’s settings, but I don’t know for sure if/how it would work.

So cute they are .Thank you .
I’m glad you like them!
Hello, I just want to say, thank you so much for all your amazing resources! I have had your monster 100’s chart and the mini monsters that go with it and the 1-100 flash cards. I didn’t even know these clippie cards existed! My children love the monsters theme! I have used it for my 6 year old, still use it for her and now my 4 year old. He loves to feed the monsters some glass pebbles he has. He must feed them the right amount of pebbles that match the card to keep monsters happy. We really enjoy them, thank you so much x
